Let the Games Begin!
This week our students will be taking the Scholastic Reading Inventory (SRI). The SRI is a reading comprehension test that assesses students’ reading skills. The score from this test helps teachers place students on the correct educational path, adjust their teaching style to students’ needs, track students’ reading growth over time, and match readers to books appropriate for their skills. .
Also this week, students will be participating in their grade level Field Day. Students will get to experience a variety of fun activities in a friendly and safe environment.
Field day dates are as follow:
6th Grade - Wednesday, May 17th
7th Grade - Thursday, May 18th
8th Grade - Friday May 19th
This week, our students continue reviewing reading comprehension skills and academic vocabulary in preparation for the Scholastic Reading Inventory (SRI). Students will be reading a series of short essays and news articles to identify main idea, supporting evidence from text and using context clues to determine the meaning of new words.
Tuesday we will be celebrating our East Cobb Middle School International Night.
Come join an infusion of cultures with samplings of traditions, history, customs, and talents of our students, staff, and community.
